The locals reportedly call this house 'Xanadune' (a play on an ancient word meaning 'paradise'). To me, that means it's got to be something special. And the photos don't disappoint.

Located on Long Beach Boulevard in Long Beach Township, this Nantucket-style home built in 1994 is the epitome of beach living. It's only three houses off the beach in Loveladies, by the way. NICE views! It's been named 'Vacation Home of The Year' by House Beautiful, a well-known home and lifestyle magazine/website, according to Patch.com.

Currently for sale for a little under $2 million, this light, open, airy space boasts 5 bedrooms and 3 1/2 baths, according to Realtor.com, with a den that houses a Murphy bed for additional lodging. Some of the selling points for ME are the outdoor showers, hot tub (housed in its own 'shingled shack', a 3-floor elevator, not to mention that laundry room of my dreams!

Like, PLEASE just let me smoosh on the comfy, oversized living room sofas. I'd never leave.

'Xanadune' also has multiple decks for sunning or shading, a screened-in porch, and a boat dock within walking distance, and gorgeous landscaping (HELLO, HYDRANGEAS!). But, ONLY a 2-CAR GARAGE? How would I ever get by?! Lol.
